Influenced by the creativity shown during Milan Design Week last month and new collections for Spring, here COVER offers four engaging rugs for May.

 

Art & Loom

Stonehenge Rug Art Loom

Miami-based rug brand Art & Loom and interior designer Bea Pernia collaborated on The Art of Formation installation at Alcova during Milan Design Week. The display included four new rugs by Art & Loom—Ondula, Stonehenge, The Formation Era, and The Divide—featuring organic shapes and patterns inspired by tectonic plate shifts, imagined rock formations and shattered slate. Shown here, the Stonehenge Rug is hand-knotted in New Zealand wool, Chinese silk and linen.

Esquisses Collection Faye Toogood x Maison Matisse

Shown as part of 5Vie in Milan, the Toogood Esquisses collection for Maison Matisse, comprises soft wool blankets and hand-knotted rugs, plus furniture. The Tenture rectangular rug and runner, made by cc-tapis, are hand-knotted in Himalayan wool and feature designs in brown and white inspired by black and white drawings by Henri Matisse.

Ferreira de Sá

Bedforms Blue Desert Ferreira de Sá

The new Fusion collection by Ferreira de Sá is inspired by the ocean, the mountains, and the sky and uses powerful palettes of colour plus the finest raw materials like mohair, botanical silk and ECONYL®. The hand-tufted designs feature hand carved pile and colour gradients to create innovative surfaces. 

Garance Vallée x Nordic Knots

The Grand Garance Vallée x Nordic Knots

French multidisciplinary artist, Garance Vallée has created a rug collection for Nordic Knots. Hand-loomed in New Zealand wool the collection Grand presents a sculptural trio of rugs that can be used as independent pieces or be combined. The three rugs are composed of cut pile and cut outs to create intriguing shaped rugs that can fit together like a puzzle.
